The Presidential election of 1968 caused a major shift in American foreign policy, with the issue of ending the Vietnam War being a main point of debate. The contenders for the presidency were Richard M. Nixon and Hubert Humphrey, with Nixon winning the presidency. Although both candidates ran similar campaigns they approached the topic of Vietnam differently. A major difference between their campaigns was the rhetoric used, with Nixon promising to get America out of the war quickly. The rhetoric of the 1968 election and the year following set in motion Richard Nixon’s rise to power which led to the end of the Vietnam War, this was accomplished effectively and within the first four years of his presidency through the promises made and his ability to accomplish them.
In the 1930s, Reagan had been a liberal Democrat who was a supporter Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945) and his New Deal programs.

Today, with the increase of social media, the growth of the federal government, disagreements between parties, along with all of the current issues, make the president’s job one of the hardest. The job of the president is not impossible, what makes it extremely difficult is that no one in Congress is willing to change the status quo. I think there is so much responsibility placed on the president that it is almost impossible to be truly successful. I think all of the stress the president undergoes daily working with his staff to find solutions to current issues that will benefit most Americans, provides
It seems that there are three main points in this section, including The Watergate Scandal, escalating the Vietnam War and the slight rise and huge fall of us return. During the election of 1968, the republican party felt as if they had no choose but let Richard Nixon return and try again as president. Nixon made a huge promise to end the Vietnam war so he was elected as the president again.

In one of the most memorable gun fights in cinema history, Client Eastwood first utters those iconic words to a wounded bank robber. It was an unforgettable moment that introduced audiences to a new hero, one that is whiling to do what is necessary for the greater good. Dirty Harry was one of the first true action films that help set the foundation for the genre, a violent and gritty film with a hero who shoots firsts then asks questions if they 're any survivors. The film was a byproduct of the social climate of the era and was panned as a work of "fascist propaganda" upon its release. Yet the film made Eastwood a pop-culture icon while becoming the blue print for other unconventional heroes.
Henry Ford was an entrepreneur who founded the Ford Motor Company in June of 1903 and grew it into a very successful business. He achieved this through free enterprise, an economic system which places few restrictions on business activities and ownership. This system allowed Ford to begin his company without restrictions from the government either preventing him from establishing it or from limiting his success. It not only helped Ford to achieve his goals in business, but it has also helped many other entrepreneurs as well. The free enterprise system has been a necessary component in allowing people, such as Henry Ford, to start, grow, and own their own businesses.
After the 1964 election in which republicans only got a handful of southern states, Nixon actively worked to appeal to southern states basically by appealing to racial prejudices. This caused an electoral re-alignment of a majority of white voters in the south to favoring the Republican Party. This strategy of capturing the south allowed Nixon to easily capture the presidency and the southern base of the republican would continue to grow from there. This strategy will have effects on later on elections as well because as they gained the vote of the white southerner they lost the African American vote which they are now trying to re-capture. As time goes on elections will rely more and more on gaining enough votes from the minority groups.
